Chinita Lavetta Lawrence, age 47 was born January 31, 1973 in Murfreesboro, Tennessee to William Lawrence and Canstace Frazier.

She transitioned from this earthly life to eterna1life on December 23, 2020.

Chinita attended Oakland High School in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.

She continued her education at Tennessee State University, graduating in 2007 with a Bachelors Degree in Psychology. Chinita's life would seem too short to many, but those who were touched by her understood the quality of existence far exceeds the quantity of time in which one lives. Her gently smile, brought so much joy to her family and friends.

She leaves her sweet memory to be cherished by her son, Lavasiar; daughter, Lezeka; sisters, Melissia Lawrence and Amber Lawrence; grandchildren, Lavasiar Jr. and Malia; aunt, Kathy Frazier Napoleon; devoted friends, Terry Patterson and Russell Bush II; a host of nieces, nephews, extended family and friends.


In efforts to be in compliance with the regulations of the CDC guidelines, mask are required upon entry of the building and temperatures will be checked at the door. This is for the safety of our community as well as our funeral home staff.
